Tuition & Scholarships

We believe cost should not prevent deserving young men from receiving an exceptional education at De Smet Jesuit High School.

At De Smet Jesuit, we recognize the significant financial commitment made by our families. We also understand that each family has unique circumstances and abilities to pay tuition. To care for each student, we offer our Family Tuition Assistance program, academic scholarships, and named scholarships from our generous benefactors. We are here to help.


Tuition $20,895
Tablet & Fees $690
TOTAL $21,585

Grade level fees for class retreats and activities are $125 for freshmen, $150 for sophomores, $150 for juniors, $350 for seniors.

Tuition rates apply to 2024-2025 school year.

Concerned about tuition costs?

Our goal is to make a Jesuit education possible for every qualified candidate. More than 75% of our newest class of Spartans have received a scholarship based on academics or character, or tuition assistance through FACTs.

We acknowledge the sacrifices families make when they invest in private school.

We take our stewardship seriously and encourage families to apply for tuition assistance and our scholarships. Please note: Tuition may be subject to change and does not include cost of books, lunch, or PE uniforms. Tuition for future academic years is released each spring.
